Our Recreation Therapy department has been providing life-changing experiences to youth and adults with physical and cognitive diagnoses for more than 65 years. Our passionate staff members use our uniquely accessible facility to empower each camper through therapeutic activities like archery, arts and crafts, basketball, canoeing, music, scuba diving, swimming, waterskiing, and low- and high-ropes courses, while focusing on building confidence, breaking barriers, and creating life-long friendships.
We partner with other organizations to provide specialty and medical camps for a variety of populations, including MDA, CHAMP Camp, Easter Seals Crossroads, Little Red Door, Camp PossAbility, and more.
Adult Camps offer a camp experience to adults of all ages with a physical disability or other medical condition - many campers have been attending our week-long or weekend adult camps for decades!
Beyond the Woods
Our Beyond the Woods program is an extension of Camp Riley, which pairs youth with physical and cognitive diagnoses with a mentor with similar life circumstances. Participants and mentors meet weekly online and throughout the year. For more information about Beyond the Woods, contact Nicole Hoover at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Camp Riley allows our child to have a wonderful camp experience, full of fun, physical and mental challenges, new friends and outdoor adventures. As her parents we know she is having a great time and is surrounded by caring staff who will ensure she is safe and well cared for.– Parent of Riley 3 camper
